Round 8: It's fib(6)! *

 

5 Minutes to show off your hack, your library, your visualization, your new programming language, your amazing new widget, whatever. After those 5 minutes, we the audience, get 5 minutes to pick your brain, give you feedback, tell you that we love it or hate it (there's hardly ever anything to hate, and we're really nice people).

Other than that, there are 2 rules: No Startup Pitches, and No Deckware -- We want to see demos of things working right now (or at least a video of it working, if it involves hardware or is not logistically feasible). If it's not finished, that's OK, but it should be demoable. Props and a half if it's libre software (sometimes referred to as "open source"). Somebody may wanna help you with it!

We're looking again for presenters. We'll shoot for 9 or 10, maybe a backup or two. If you pitched last time and didn't get a chance, pitch again! But, remember, we'll contact you if we want you to present--there are no walk ons.

If you want to present, contact James or Andrew, or better yet, fill out the RSVP question. Leave a link if relevant!

Hope to see you at Round 8!

Note: We're taking a field trip to General Assembly (http://generalassemb.ly) this month. They've got an amazing space, a great community, and we're super excited that they're willing to have us!

 

 

* - I was excited, and not trying to compute the factorial of fib(6). Unfortunately the results are extremely different.

    If anyone was interested my picture clock src is on the "pictures" branch of my tick repo. Once I come up with a nice-ish icon I'll create an installable apk for it - https://github.com/softprops/tick/tree/pictures

    code, water, pipl, h@ckers. it was awesome! Thanks again to all the people involved. General Assembly is a beautiful space! Other than the fact i'm vegan and couldn't partake in the pizza - it was perfect. the boggle project - shows that personal passion translates to beautiful art/code. Divvy - will be the best friend of anyone working 3rd shift or who is baby sitting a box using ZABBIX (or even nagios,pagerduty,whatsup gold). i say add twillio integration FTW! The locker project - can become a priceless time/headache saver for all devs. COWSAY - <is the future!>-U-/\-/\ and the audience engagement was great. full of smart feature request and constructive suggestions as well as good questions. Inspiring without a doubt! Can't wait until next time. - m.m

    That was very cool. First time attending and first time presenting. Nice informal, encouraging atmosphere. Refreshing to see some projects that were built simply for the fun/joy/experimentation of it.

  • Andrew G.

    @Kelsey we've turned on the waiting list and sent out an email asking people to update their RSVP if they can no longer make it.

    April 3, 2011

  • Kelsey J.

    No wait list? Any chance of still getting a chance to attend?

    > This is a great incentive to finish up all these half done, half baked ideas.

    That's one of the best things about this! Hope to see you at the next one.

    I know, sorry about that, I really should try to be less retarded and pedantic... Don't think I can make this monday, but this sounds like an excellent idea. Looking forward to joining in. This is a great incentive to finish up all these half done, half baked ideas.

    April 1, 2011

  • Andrew G.

    well, yeah, assuming you interpret the ! as factorial. I thought of that after the fact (no pun intended) but was too lazy to make the update.

    but fib(6)! would be 40320 ....
